  • “Our experience was excellent. DJ, the owner of Dabbs Lock, was knowledgeable and friendly, punctual and provided a fair price. He returned my calls promptly and offered not only an Angie's List discount, but additional discounts on the the locks themselves. It's clear that DJ enjoys what he does and takes great pride in providing top-notch service. I would recommend Dabbs Lock wholeheartedly.”
  • “As the Owner and President of Concierge Services Inc., I need dependable, competent, and responsive service providers to supply clients of exclusive residences throughout Greater Boston with service that surpasses expectations. Not only does DJ Dabbs exceed standard service, but he does so quickly, efficiently, and is always accessible. This type of service is invaluable in a market that is accustomed to nothing but the best.”
  • "I have had multiple break-ins as well as other lock issues (I have bad luck with locks) and have hired Dabbs Lock every time. DJ is easy to reach, very professional and always comes right away. I highly suggest him for your locksmithing needs."
  • "Showed up on time. Friendly and relaxed. Very knowledgeable. Gave good advice. Honest: he could have charged more by shaving down my wood door like I wanted, but warned me that it would probably shrink down in the winter and be really drafty. For $50 service call, he opened up a really tricky old broken lock and installed a new knob I had on hand. Very reasonably priced."
  • "He was very good. It was not so easy finding a locksmith to do one for an antique desk when the key was lost long ago. I called about 6 or 7 locksmiths and some of them did not even know what a skeleton key was and others don’t do it at all. Dabbs Lock came to the house and handcrafted one and they were here only for an hour and charged only $55. He was great. I liked that they had the skill set, which is uncommon and no one else that I called had it. When it wasn’t one of the standard ones from his ring, he crafted it from a template right here at the house. I did not have to take the desk off and take it to him and he came within 48 hours, so I did not have to wait long. He was also very polite and professional. He came to the house in the snow, was here for an hour and gave me two keys that he handmade. I would definitely recommend him to others."
  • "Dabbs Lock is one of the if not the best locksmithing service in Boston, PERIOD. I have used Dabbs' locksmithing services so many times that i couldn't even count. The service was always great and his personality was terrific. Thank you to Dabbs Lock!"
  • “I hired DJ Dabbs twice already in the past 4 months. He is extremely professional and prompt. Any person should feel confident to hire DJ . I was blown away by his great results and his ability to communicate with me as a client. I would definitely use Dabbs Lock again!”
  • "I was referred to Dabbs Lock by a friend that has used them in the past. Let me tell you that I will be using Dabbs Lock for any security needs in the future. Job was done in a timely manner, locksmith was very through and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Dabbs Lock to anyone that needs a locksmith. Prices are very reasonable, compared to other locksmiths that I have used in the past. "
  • "The repair was more challenging than he anticipated, but he was resourceful in checking out all options and stayed with it until he found an effective and reasonably priced solution which was right for us."
  • "I was getting fed up with my old locksmith not showing up when they were supposed to and doing a poor quality job the last few visits. Being the manager of an apartment complex, I need reliable contractors and that's why I turned to Dabbs Lock. At our first meeting they were 10 minutes early, and every appointment after that they have been no less then 5 min early. I guess that's why their slogan is "Prompt Professional Locksmith Service." They are truly a lifesaver knowing all I have to do is call them for service and forget about it. They show up when they say they will be there and make sure my master key continues to work when they leave. Their prices are more then reasonable and its awesome to know they offer the same great service 24-hours a day. They are probably the most reliable 24 hour emergency locksmith around. Its a shame I didn't find them years ago."
  • "Responded promptly, showed up when scheduled, pleasant demeanor, price break for small job, lock now works better than it ever has. Very satisfied - would use again."
